Steven Cohen writes on Feedster Hacks that all blogs now come with RSS feeds. Is that true? I thought Blogger only used Atom and that there are still other platforms that didn’t offer any feed options.

Jon Levell writes about comment spam and how he, as a WordPress user, can monitor comments before they’re posted. He also indicates spam controls are part of other blog platforms.

I came across this wiki spam today and realized yet another reason why comment spam is problematic. As a first-time visitor to the wiki, I [...]
One question I’ve never really answered for myself or my readers is what the difference between RSS and Atom is. In anticipation of this question coming up in a future presentation, here are some resources about the feeds. I’m a little surprised I couldn’t find information on the difference between Atom and RSS on their [...]

Christina writes about an article by Bill Ives and two co-authors examining blogs as better knowledge management tools than what’s currently used in corporations. I’m reconsidering blogs as knowledge management tools after talking to someone tonight who set up a wiki to help her better organize certain resources she frequently loses on her blog. One [...]
Check out this new blog by Steven Cohen of Library Stuff: "Feedster Hacks is a weblog and directory for the various hacks that have been created with Feedster …" This feed is now in my aggregator. I wonder what other librarians Feedster has tapped … Isn’t there a quote about smart organizations employing multiple librarians [...]
